Re: 2018 Z19 help

The plugs are used to adjust your hole shot. If you are getting on plane smoothly without plowing out, you won't need them. If you are blowing out, then start with the medium plugs and try it, if that doesn't cure it go to the smaller plugs. If it still doesn't put in the solid plugs.
